Teacher BIO

I originally trained in dance at The Central School of Ballet, London. After graduation I joined the Scottish Ballet and performed with them in many full length classical ballets as well as numerous shorter contemporary and dramatic pieces. My first introduction to Pilates was all those years ago as a professional dancer!

Living in California (2009-12) gave me the unique opportunity to study Pilates with Body Arts and Science International (BASI Pilates®). The BASI Comprehensive Teacher Training program is a rigorous and demanding program of academic study, practice, apprenticeship and observation - encompassing the full range of Pilates apparatus.

Since my first teacher training I have continued to study and regularly attend workshops by world renown teachers such as Alan Herdman, Lolita San Miguel, Michele Larsson, Junghee Won and Blossom - to name just a few! During 2015/16 I participated in New York based Shari Berkowitz's 18 month Vertical Workshop Teacher Intensives Program (in London), which focused on applying modern biomechanics and functional anatomy to the Classical Pilates method.

In both September 2017 and March 2018 I was fortunate to attend two separate five day intensives with Madeline Black who is a distinguished international educator in movement and exercise education.

When not doing Pilates I am looking after my three children and walking the coast path with my sausage dog, Lola!
